Our Girls' Team Wins FCPS 'B' League Basketball Championship
Top-seeded Beaumont edged No. 2 Leestown 35-33 for the "B" league championship in the countywide middle school girls' basketball tournament. Coach Anthony Wilson called it a tremendous and competitive game!
Sidney Yaden led the way with 15 points despite being double-teamed and trapped the whole game, and Jayla Bryant added 13 points. Wilson said sixth grader E’Maria Owens cleaned up in rebounding, and her aggressive play helped seal the game. He also credited sub Emerson Stone, saying, “Her ball-handling contributions greatly helped our chance to gain the title.”
“We are a very young team, and I look forward to developing and coaching them next season,” Wilson added.
Beaumont, which eliminated Bryan Station and Edythe J. Hayes in the earlier rounds of the tournament, was also the regular-season champion. Team members included Kennedy Brooks, Jayla Bryant, Emerson Easley, Sophie Griffith, Beyla Jones, Belle Merritt, E’Maria Owens, Lilly Sawyers, Emerson Stone, Sidney Yaden, and Maggie Grace Young.
The girls' season-ending tournament wrapped up right before Fall Break.
